“And to the angel of the church in Sardis write,
„These things says He who has the seven Spirits of
God and the seven stars: “I know your works, that you
have a name that you are alive, but you are dead. Be
watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that
are ready to die, for I have not found your works
perfect before God. Remember therefore how you
have received and heard; hold fast and repent.
Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as
a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come
You have a few names even in Sardis who have not
defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in
white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be
clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his
name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name
before My Father and before His angels.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says
to the churches.”‟
Pretty grim stuff, eh?
Really, it is worse that it might seem…
The church at Sardis was not dead on the
They were dead on the inside….
That is a serious problem!
